On Monday, Dec. 23 from 4 p.m. -5:30 p.m., the community is invited to enjoy and sing holiday songs along with our staff on the second floor of the library! Acoustic guitar and vocals will be performed by Don Bailey and Gary Huffman. All are welcome for this delightful and uplifting Christmas program!

Now through December 23, children of all ages are invited to stop by Children’s Department at Carnegie Public Library in Washington Court House and design, create, and then take home the perfect Christmas card for your family member or friend! Also, the library has a special North Pole mailbox for letters to Santa Claus! If you have any last minute requests, drop them off, or use one of our “official” forms! Be sure to tell the big guy just how nice you have been this year!
